Portobello Community Forum

Portobello Community Forum

Portobello Community Forum has been excellent in engaging with the community. In a creative way to engage with people, group member Sarah has been utilising videos to talk to and explain to people what is going on at the community centre. This personal touch gives people a familiar and recognisable face that helps them feel welcomed. The videos compliment the amazing work that the group does, including holding events throughout the year from a sewing club to photography and youth clubs.

Warwick Community Group

Warwick Community Group

The Warwick Community Group helps the older generation to learn and become more confident online. These sessions allow elderly people to learn how to utilise social media safely to stay in contact with family and friends which helps to battle social isolation. The team’s digital angels run courses on how to access online bank accounts helping people who can’t travel to their local branch. The group is open four days each week and even when courses aren’t running, the members are always on hand to help out anyone with a question.
